[IP] Seeking Information



Folks,
I know some of us here in the group have an eye disease or some sort of visual
impairment. My question to the group is ...Has anyone had a corneal transplant
or know someone who has?  I've tried to find a support group on the net, but
haven't come up with anything specific.  My cornea was damaged as a result of
three glaucoma surgeries (2001-2003.)  Blindness resulted in the one eye.  The
corneal specialist I saw last week has given me a "little" hope and
considerable "food for thought" if I'm willing to take the risk.  He feels
it's worth a shot however, I've been led to believe from two previous consults
that the procedure could not be done in my case because the possibility of
rejection was high.
My sugars are in pretty good control thanks to the pump and I don't have any
diabetic changes in my eyes.

Does anyone have some input for me now?
